Hole 1

Most golf courses start you off with a relatively benign opening hole to allow you to find your swing before tackling the rest of the layout. Not so at Ould Newbury.

The first hole requires a long and accurate drive from an elevated tee, avoiding the out of bounds and Route 1, which runs down the entire right hand side of the fairway. You also need to stay away from the large willow trees that guard the left hand side of this hole. A good tee shot leaves you with a mid to long iron approach to a green guarded by traps to the right and a severe drop off to the left and rear. A par is an excellent start but don't be disappointed with a bogey.
